It used to be that my favorite shows were the ones I had on tape, back when resources were limited to "who you knew."

You are asking us what our favorite show is. In other words, when we need a Dead show to lift our spirits, which one do we listen to?

6-28-88 for a solid show, and a great Stella Blue.

7-7-89 for a good Brent rap in blow away, and a nice S>F>Estimated>SOTM

3-15-90 for kick ass spring tour 1990 memories

5-14-70 for some classic Dead accoustic and an inspiring Speedway Boogie

10-27-79 for some freakish Dancin>franklins jamming action

10-17-83 for a good Sugaree (check out JGB 3-8-80 at the Stone for another inspirational Sugaree)

Feb/March 1969 for some sick-pickin Jerry

3-28-81 for showing off their stuff in Germany, hot show

I am still finding great shows that I haven't heard before, keep on listening. 60's, 70's, 80's, and even the 90's - there's so much to explore and discover. Good luck with your adventure!

I've never understood the passion for scarlet > fire ...

To say 'it's not a show without' it, or some such thing, reminds me of hundreds of AUDs salted by some dude shouting down an otherwise beautiful song.

12-31-84 likely fits your bill ... listen and log off, your slowing down the server.

You're right, Will - some thread. Hijacked to hell and back and still going strong. Coming up on the 500 mark, would you believe it?

Nope; not for a minute...does seem that threads these days amass a few more hits than they did back in the day (makes you feel a bit older, eh? IE, back in Dec 06 [!?] when we first discussed this point--how many of "us" are there?).

Still don't know if the 300 exist in our minds, in reality or only in SDH's magic fingers burning up his keyboard to make us feel like someone cares...

Yes - you do rather wonder where all those clicks on the threadhead are coming from once the thread itself is well established. By this time I'm only clicking on the subheads, as it were, keeping up with 'our' conversations. I'm sure sometimes there's a little 'thread inflation' going on - I can scarcely imagine that around 500 unique individuals were motivated to start from the beginning of what was a pretty brainless thread in the first place.

As for SDH wanting to make us feel that someone cares... that's a little like seeing Bigfoot dropped off from a flying saucer piloted by Elvis.

Hold it! That explains quite a bit...the big furball with only his head hair slicked into a curl as big as any on the North Shore of Oahu during surf season seen scampering around SDH's compound. I understand that's the first stop for all ET's making their way to the clean air (cough, cough) of the desert Southwest. All of SDH's electronic gadgetry just draws them in like intergalactic flies to shit...

Funny that the thread with perhaps the most important title of interest to Heads spent so little time addressing the topic in question, eh?

Our work is done here...or maybe not.

Dude, I thought we were going to discuss the movie and it's relation to all things Grateful Dead

Spartan King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and 300 Spartans fight to the last man against Persian 'God-King' Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and his army of over one million soldiers, while in Sparta, Queen Gorgo (Lena Headey) attempts to rally support for her husband. The story is framed by a voice-over narrative by the Spartan soldier Dilios (David Wenham). Through this narrative technique, various fantastical creatures are introduced, placing 300 within the genre of historical fantasy.

Yeah, I figured that sticking to the "facts" (okay, as best we know the truth/myth) would have made for a better approach. Amazing story, like so much of history, that would have made for a fantastic movie without the feeling of watching another Star Wars or Lord of the Rings (not that I didn't like those...).

The most believable thing about it was having hard as nails bad ass Leonidas played by a Scotsman.
